Coinciding with the worldwide release of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT on the PS4, Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia has arrived on mobile beyond the shores of Japan for the first time. If you’re a fan of Final Fantasy, you’ll be on Cloud IX – the game brings together the beloved heroes and villains of the franchise into a dimension-bending spin-off.
The plot continues the overarching narrative of the Dissidia Final Fantasy series. In this case, the various famous characters of the franchise are relaxing in the peace and quiet of Opera Omnia. This world was built by two gods as a sanctuary for weary warriors to chill for a spell. Unfortunately, dimensional cracks are letting some particularly mean monsters in. The only way to restore equilibrium is for an ancient moogle – the little magical fluffballs that squeak ‘kupo’ – to use its powers. But it needs help, and that’s where you come in. Join forces with famous Final Fantasy faces, good and bad, to fight a greater evil and return Opera Omnia to the ultimate R&R pad.
Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia is developed by Team Ninja, famous for the hack-and-slash mayhem of Ninja Gaiden – but this is a far more traditional JRPG affair. Battles are turn-based and hark back to the original Final Fantasy instalments. There’s also a Bravery bar to keep an eye on: Special attacks fill it up, and it’s down to you to deploy it at the right moment to devastate your enemy.
Aside from single player missions, you can take the fight online with friends. Opera Omnia features a dedicated multiplayer mode, with battles stretching across desperate continents and promising great rewards for the victors.
